About Motherland

Premiering exclusively in North America and available as a full season binge on Sundance Now and AMC+ on Thursday, July 8, Britain’s favorite gang of moms (and dad) is back for a third season of Motherland, navigating the pitfalls of middle-class parenting and the complicated politics of the school gates.

In the new season, Julia’s (Anna Maxwell Martin, Line of Duty) elderly mother Marion (Ellie Haddington, Enola Holmes) has moved in thanks to failing health, so Julia is faced with the prospect of granny proofing her house. The only silver lining to this horror arrives in the form of Julia’s new builder who turns out to be quite the DILF. Meanwhile, Amanda (Lucy Punch, Bloods) navigates the humiliation of divorce from Johnny (Terry Mynott, The Windsors), single mum Liz (Diane Morgan, Intelligence) launches herself back into the world of work, and Kevin (Paul Ready, Flack) tries everything to rekindle the spark with wife Jill. Highflyer Meg (Tanya Moodie, A Discovery of Witches) faces big health issues and Anne (Philippa Dunne, The Nevers) has to cope with a growing family. All this while the moms grapple with Mother’s Day, the looming choice of secondary schools, a nit pandemic, and the school trip from hell. This season also includes a memorable guest appearance by beloved BAFTA-Award winning actress Joanna Lumley (Absolutely Fabulous, The Wolf of Wall Street) as Amanda’s poisonous mother.

Motherland season three, A Sundance Now Exclusive Series, is a Boom Cymru TV Ltd and Merman MMXVII production. Sharon Horgan (Catastrophe), Holly Walsh (The Other One), Helen Serafinowicz (Fit) and Barunka O’ Shaughnessy (Breeders) serve as writers and Simon Hynd (There She Goes) serves as director. Lionsgate distributes the series internationally.

This Country

FOX • 2021

This Country

When a documentary crew sets out to explore the lives of residents in a small American town – their concerns, their dreams, their lives – they stumble upon the midwestern town of Flatch, a place you want to visit and maybe even stay. If there was a decent motel. Which there is not. Flatch is made up of many eccentric personalities, including two cousins who don’t have much, but they do have each other. Twenty-year-old KELLY MALLET (newcomer Chelsea Holmes) has never left her hometown and doesn’t want to. Outwardly tough, she’s really a softie with dreams of being an entrepreneur, and the wardrobe of an aging male sports fan. SHRUB MALLET (newcomer Sam Straley) is Kelly’s 21-year-old cousin and best friend. He has the soul of an artist and the body of an artist with a mineral deficiency. Hoping to guide Kelly and Shrub is FATHER JOE (Seann William Scott, “Lethal Weapon,” “American Pie” franchise), the town’s new pastor and a recent transplant from Minneapolis. He loves his adopted town and its odd inhabitants and always believes things can be made better with a good chat and a hug, even though he’s not sure it’s okay to hug anymore. Actually, Joe arrived in Flatch with his girlfriend, CHERYL (Aya Cash, “The Boys,” “You’re The Worst”), but they broke up soon after they moved. A reporter back in Minneapolis, Cheryl is surprised to find that she is blossoming here as editor of the town’s newspaper (circulation 751). Other residents of the town are NADINE PETERSON (Taylor Ortega, “Succession”), who went to high school with Shrub and Kelly and is everything they are not – beautiful, married, successful; BIG MANDY (newcomer Krystal Smith), Kelly’s neighbor and a magnetic force of nature; and MICKEY (newcomer Justin Linville), an old classmate of Shrub and Kelly’s who works at the fireworks store.

The Office

This US adaptation, set at a paper company in Scranton, Pa., has a similar documentary style to that of the Ricky Gervais-led British original. It features the staff of Dunder-Mifflin, a staff that includes characters based on characters from the British show (and, quite possibly, people you work with in your office). There’s Jim, the likable employee who’s a bit of an everyman. Jim has a thing for receptionist-turned-sales rep Pam (because office romances are always a good idea). There’s also Dwight, the successful co-worker who lacks social skills and common sense. And there’s Ryan, who has held many jobs at the company.

My Life Is Murder

Acorn TV • 2019 • IMDb: 7.5

My Life Is Murder

My Life is Murder follows the adventures of fearless private investigator Alexa Crowe, who solves the most baffling crimes as well as coping with the frustrations of everyday life. Fearless and playful, she acts on instinct; both avenging angel and a bit of an investigator; deeply empathetic and blunt to the point of rudeness. And with a deeply irreverent sense of humor to boot. Other than the fact her husband died a few years ago, very few people know much about Alexa or why she left the force, rendering this woman a mystery in and of herself. And Alexa can’t resist a mystery, so when a former colleague and long-time friend Detective Inspector Kieran Hussey asks her to “consult” on his trickier cases, she seems reluctant. But in truth, she can’t resist. Joining Alexa to solve the unsolvable is the bubbly, sarcastic, ambitious and grounded, Madison. A true extrovert, Madison works as a Data Analyst for the Police and is on hand at Alexa’s call to do what she does best.
